If chili moved to Italy, it would become this steamy bowl of goodness.
When chili calls, I answer. I have always loved the stuff, and my chili obsession has increased dramatically since I moved to the Rocky Mountains 10 years ago – seriously, when it is below freezing, I start to crave chili. I even daydream about chili. And in one of my daydreams, I dreamt about chili translated into Italian.
The Italian sausage is the star of this dish, so make sure you get the good stuff – I like the kind my grocery store makes daily. Then, the rest are more traditional ingredients – like beans and tomatoes. But the flavors are Italian all the way.
Serve this up in bowls with Parmesan and crostini on the side. Warmth to the belly and the soul!
